Swansea City v Bristol City : Team News
Saturday, 2nd Sep 2023 10:17 by Swansea Independent

After the Lord Mayors show ? Well, off the pitch anyway. We hope not as the Swans and the Robins meet in todays early kick off at the Swansea.Com Stadium. Michael Duff has plenty to choose from but players from the recruitment made yesterday are unavailable.

Team news is in -

Swansea City: Carl Rushworth; Nathan Wood, Kyle Naughton, Ben Cabango; Harrison Ashby, Ollie Cooper, Matt Grimes (captain), Charlie Patino, Josh Key; Liam Cullen, Jerry Yates.

Substitutes: Andy Fisher, Jay Fulton, Harry Darling, Joe Allen, Josh Ginnelly, Jamie Paterson, Mykola Kuharevich, Nathan Tjoe-A-On, Filip Lissah.

Bristol City: Max O'Leary, Cameron Pring, Kal Naismith, Matty James (captain), Joe Williams, Jason Knight, Mark Sykes, Sam Bell, Nahki Wells, Taylor Gardner-Hickman, Zak Vyner.

Substitutes: Stefan Bajic, Harry Cornick, Andy King, Anis Mehmeti, Rob Dickie, George Tanner, Haydon Roberts, Ephraim Yeboah.

Michael Duff : “With the ball we want to be as good as we were for the first hour at Preston, and be as good without it as we were against Bournemouth the other night. That’s the challenge for us. We want to see things coming out in games, we have been the better team in recent games but we have not come out on the right side of the stat that matters. We can see progression, but we want to make sure those key moments start going in our favour.”

Nigel Pearson : “We’ve got five injuries and, of those, Ross (McCrorie) won’t be available until maybe January/February time; Rob Atkinson will probably start training in November; Tommy Conway, Ayman Benarous will probably start training in October and that leaves Andi Weimann who will be back in September,” Pearson said. “So, yeah, we’ve got injuries which we’re not going to get back pretty quickly, apart from Andi. Tough for him (Ross) to take, obviously, because it’s something that’s just unusual. We can’t do anything about it. The operation he needs won’t be straightforward either but it’s not for me to divulge medical information”

Swansea City v Bristol City kicks off at 12.30pm this afternoon. Team news at 11.30am UK time.
